Yeah... Regen1/Regen2... I just took a look at the sticky >>> Guide to tell if Club Car is Series or Sepex(regen) system

and here's the Regen2 controller:



It just goes to show that sparkies are "Greek" to me!

I thought about just not replacing it, then it popped in my head this morning...
"She has limited use of her legs, what would happen if she goes down some sort of hill?"

So... for that instance, I'd like to replace it!

Definitely replace it for that reason!

Well... I finally get a chance to work on this cart today!
(the owner is an avid hunter, and it's the last time/day for a decent temperature before the dreaded Wisconsin winter)

I "think" I have everything ready...??? (less the regen2 speed sensor)

Wish me luck!

Grade 5 is not only recommended, it's the safest. Grade 5 bolts with give, stretch, and bend a little before they break. Grade 8 is harder and therefore more brittle than a grade 5 and rather than bend or stretch 8's will snap. Personally, I'd rather have the inherent warning that comes with a grade 5 than the immediate failure of a grade 8.

Yeah well, I don't know what grade the originals were, but, I do know that they stretched twice before snapping!

I wasn't able to get much done yesterday... I found more carnage!
When the axle came off/fell off/broke off... it tore the lug off of the regen solenoid, and stretched the resistor coil:

006 - Copy.JPG

And not only that... the drivers side rear leaf had a broken helper spring, and on the passenger side, the helper leaf was completely missing!!

010.JPG

It's fortunate for them, and me... that I just so happen to still have my HD rear leafs from when I put on medium duty leafs! (sp? leaves?)
that quick sale put some $ in my pocket, and freed up a shelf in my garage! (I just didn't have them with me! )

Here's some parts questions for you CC sparky guys...

1) Is the Dynamic Braking Solenoid the same part number as the Main Control Solenoid?

2) The coil resistor on the regen solenoid (Energy Displacement Module)...
I can't find the part number for that anywhere, is there an updated "precharge" resistor that replaces it?

And last but not least... 3) the regen2 speed sensor: (David... I have to repair, or replace this!)

013.JPG

I cant find a part number for this either! are they even available anymore?
and if I can repair it, (the wires were pulled... not broken from the pins) how do I remove the pins from the socket?

Not sure on the solenoid, if it looks the same as the main one it probably is. Here's a link to the coil you need: http://www.golfcartking.com/Club-Car...tor-p/5745.htm

As for the speed sensor, I can't help much there, sorry. Hope the coil info helps though!

No problem! After a little more looking I just found this, looks like your solenoid and matches up to the year and model: http://www.golfcartking.com/Club-Car.../1168%20cc.htm

Thanks again! I know the Main solenoid is CC#1018070-01,
but, I don't want to replace the regen solenoid without 99% confirmation that it's the same one!
(it's not my money, and at the same time, I don't need sparky parts laying around that I can't/won't use!)

On a side note:
It's kinda funny... I spent some 2 1/2 hours doing a search on your #1 resistor coil for your Craigslist cart...
all I could find was the part number, gauge, and number of wraps! but no resistance values...
and that's why I never replied! (mostly because I don't know sparkies very well!) But, hey... I at least I tried!
